From a press release:
“Locally-based delivery and ordering platform DC To-GoGo has launched special holiday stores, offering free delivery to anyone in DC on meal packages, charcuterie boards, and cocktail specials from local restaurants. Whether you’re looking for heat-at-home feasts for the whole family, grazing boards filled with curated cheese and charcuterie, or seasonal cocktails to ring in the new year, they have options for you. Customers can bundle specials from different spots together to take care of all their holiday needs, so they can avoid the kitchen (and dishes) on on New Year’s Eve and spend time with loved ones.

DC To-GoGo is a new and DC-based delivery and ordering service that helps support the local restaurant industry. While other platforms charge high commission fees to restaurants and use gig-economy jobs to take advantage of workers, it charges fair commissions and guarantees living wages to its couriers. 100% of customers’ tips go directly to the delivery courier.”
